South Florida Business Journal
Only a few years ago, options were limited for South Florida entrepreneurs seeking a business incubator or shared workspace to help launch or grow their businesses.
There was the Technology Business Incubator in Boca Raton and a variety of mentoring programs, but the landscape for such facilities was sparse.
That all changed as the economy climbed out of the Great Recession.
In 2012, The LAB Miami raised $650,000 from angel investors and the Knight Foundation to open a collaborative work/learn campus in Miami’s Wynwood neighborhood.
A string of other big announcements came along, mostly in the Miami area, from Rokk3r Labs in Miami Beach, Pipeline Brickell in the Brickell financial district and Venture Hive in downtown Miami.
